She collected
Gun-slingers, first-stringers, dead-ringers
She just needed more

She collected
Dance hallers, Know-it-all-ers, Wreckin-ball-ers
She just needed more
She just needed more

She had cars, clothes and heath
She just needed more
She had looks, spare time and wealth
She just needed more

She collected
Chain letters, Irish setters, go-getters
She just needed more

She collected
Show-stoppers, window-shoppers, name droppers,
She just needed more
She just needed more

She had money to pay her fines
She just needed more
I gave her all of my time
She just needed more

At first I hardly noticed
I thought she was just showing affection
But when her carpenter came
To measure me for a frame
I walked right out of her collection

She collected
Ransackers, bushwhackers, nutcrackers
She just needed more
She collected
Soul sellers, fortune-tellers, Go-to-Hell-ers
She just needed more
She just needed more

She had diamonds, pearls and wine
She just needed more
I gave her all of my time
She just needed more
